4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750ml bottle split with the wife celebrating the birth of our twins. We now have 3 love childs.
A - Pours a murky with a small head.
S - Smells sour, acidic lacto, mild dusty funk, sharp damp wood, sour orchard fruit, apples, berry tartness, some peppery notes, whiskey soaked wood. The aroma of old furniture woods comes out when warmed up.
T - Puckering sour upfront, acidic fruit, unsweetened cranberry juice, tart cherries, apple skins, lemons, sharp salty cheese, a rounding whiskey and wood slowly sneaks out as it warms. The finish has a snappy pepperness to it, but closes crisp and clean.
M - Sour with an acidic bite, mild effervescent carbonation that smooths out as it sets.
This packs a pretty sour punch. The tartness puckers your taste buds, scrubs the palate bringing with it complex esters, leaving behind light whiskey and old wood. Very nice roundness with crisp and snappy finish. I wish I would have bought more.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle, probably from Vinmonopolet Kvadrat. ABV is 9.5%. Hazy orange to brown colour, moderate off-white head. Lovely aroma of brettanomyces / farmhouse, lemons, oak and bourbon. Sour / acidic flavour, red wine vinegar and lemons galore, also hints of oak and bourbon - an unusual combination. This must be the "whiskey sour" of the beer world.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes. Finally found the long-lost notebook from the 4 Elf Party at Dark Horse on December 13! So, that’s where this was found. Shared by Haley as I was wandering through the crowd. The pour is a dark reddish ambery color with a quick fading white head, lingering just a collar. No real lace here on it. The aroma is nice and tart with some beautiful sharp fruits. Cherry, grape and orange are real prominent. The taste is pretty sharp and tart cherry with a good orange peel thing going on. There isn’t a great complexity to it as I’ve had with some good sours, but I’m not going to complain. The mouth feel is pretty damn good with a nice subtle carbonation and a lingeringly sour tart finish. Not too bad, but I’ve had better!

750ml bottle bought a while ago at Vinmonopolet Vika. Shared with Finn. Hazy apricot coloured body under a fair white lacing-head. Lemony tart aroma. Taste of oak, earth and ripe fruits with lemon up front. Tart fruity edge to the finish. Soft in the mouth. Refreshing palate cleanser (Tromsø 11.02.2015).
